The Top 5 Must-Have Features for a Car Vacuum Cleaner

2 Min Read

  • Buying Guide

A car vacuum is an essential tool for cleaning and maintaining your car’s interior. With a wide range of features available, it can be hard to understand which are the most important. In this article, we'll explore the top 5 must-have features for a car vacuum cleaner.

1. Powerful Suction
One of the most important features to consider when choosing a car vacuum is its suction power. A powerful vacuum ensures that even the most stubborn dirt, debris and pet hair is collected from your footwells, under seats and in the car boot.

Did you know: The Vacmaster Multi 20 Vacuum Cleaner has been awarded an Auto Express Best Buy Award (Best Car Vacuum Cleaners 2023), with the review stating that the Vacmaster Multi 20 “performed better in suction tests than rivals…”

 2. Compact and Portable Design

It is important that the car vacuum is compact and easy to manoeuvre around the vehicle as you clean. Typically, cylinder vacuums with swivel wheels are better than upright vacuum cleaners for cleaning the car. A compact design allows you to store the vacuum in your garage without taking up too much space.

3. Long Power Cord and Cleaning Hose
Car vacuums with a long power cord and cleaning hose allow for greater reach and flexibility, especially if you're working in a larger vehicle. Cordless vacuums with a detachable handheld vacuum, like the Vacmaster Joey Compact, should also be considered as they offer unrestricted movement and are perfect for quick clean-ups.

4. Wet and Dry Functionality
A wet and dry vacuum cleaner, like the Vacmaster Multi 20, is capable of capturing dirt, dust, mud and water, making it an ideal car vacuum, especially if you have young children or pets. They are also great for cleaning up after DIY.

5. Versatile Attachments
Different surfaces within your car demand different cleaning approaches. Look for a car vacuum that comes with a variety of attachments like crevice tools, brush nozzles and upholstery brushes. These attachments make it easier to clean various surfaces, from carpets to upholstery and even tight corners.

Investing in a car vacuum with these top 5 must-have features will not only save you time, but also ensure a thorough and efficient clean for your vehicle's interior. Powerful suction, reach and versatility are key components to look for when choosing the perfect car vacuum.
